I guess this is because (Turbo) Pascal Strings cannot be longer than 255
chars. So you should change the source of uncgi to use pchar or
ansistrings for all string manipulations. It is not enough to convert to
a pchar or ansistring at the end, because if anywhere you get a standard
string the result will be truncated to 255 chars.
